DCAA Reviews – Requirements and Common Deficiencies

Join DCAA Representatives for this discussion of DCAA Reviews!

Audits of cost assertions and their supporting business systems are a routine part of US Government contracting for those pursuing or awarded cost reimbursable contracts or contracts requiring submittal of certified cost or pricing data.  The plethora of regulatory requirements and expectations makes compliance, at best, a complex endeavor.  These sessions will address requirements and common deficiencies associated with cost assertions and their supporting business systems subject to DCAA review.  DCAA specialists will discuss solicitation and contractual requirements, audits, and common deficiencies.  These sessions will help contractors understand their compliance requirements.
